What's more important than a deadline? Nothing.

We love nothing more than completing the job when we say we will, delivering what you need when you need it and on budget.  We have a proven track record of making that happen, even under the most intense deadlines and pressure. Let us manage the details that trip up a lot of others.  Your fate can't - must not - rest with those who are not fast enough, creative enough, nimble enough to craft and construct your success.  On time.  On budget.

Here at ECI we've developed a proprietary process for planning, tracking, and managing programs from tens of thousands of contacts to even the smallest campaign. We pinpoint and deliver what your success demands.

Your success is our priority.  From local and state to federal initiatives, our sole goal is to win results for you.  We are not in this to win awards; Sometimes the two just happen to come together.
